Alicia Talbot Senior Strategic Project Leader, City of Parramatta
Alicia’s experience spans artistic practice, programming and designing cultural strategy and cultural infrastructure for cities. Her expertise in developing collaborations across multiple sectors has seen her develop an impressive body of work that weaves together a deep interrogation of place, identity and story.
As an artist she has created iconic, critically and audience acclaimed new Australian works that draw on collaboration, conversation and consultation - often the result of long-term partnerships with Aboriginal, First Nations and culturally diverse practitioners and communities. Alicia’s projects have been presented to national and international audiences and festivals including Adelaide, Sydney, Yirramboi (Melbourne), Luminato (Canada) and LIFT (UK).
Over the past few years she’s turned her attention to creative place-making and city shaping projects, leading the ambitious re-visioning of the City of Parramatta’s cultural plan.
Alicia engages political, government, community, business, cultural, religious, heritage and educational stakeholders in partnerships that drive cultural action.
